Benedicts, biscuits and bloodys abound in this town, and we know that nobody needs to tell you that weekends are for brunching. Next weekend, consider perusing the list of restaurants participating in Richmond Brunch Weekend before heading out the door in the morning. More than 40 local businesses are taking part in the annual two-day event, and they've all agreed to donate 15 percent of the weekend's proceeds to Virginia Commonwealth University's Massey Cancer Center. Several places, like On the Rox in Shockoe Bottom, Continental Divide in the Fan and Eggspress in North Side, will serve Massey mimosas: specialty drinks available for the entire month, and $1 from each will also go to the Massey Cancer Center.

Wednesday, March 28, more than two-dozen Richmond-area restaurants and food vendors will gather at St. Gertrude High School for the annual Gator Gourmet. Each vendor will serve its signature dish, and at the end of the night, awards will go out for best dish, best dessert and best booth. Advance tickets cost $25 or four for $90; tickets at the door will be $35. Be sure to bring cash for the bar.
